Puppy Fun Hour
This 50 minute class is designed to maximize learning and socialization during this important developmental stage for your puppy. This curriculum is different than the Skills & Manners class!

Skills & Manners - Part 1 & 2
This class is for ALL ages, from puppy to senior.
If you dog has some skills, but isn’t very reliable with distractions, or if your dog is brand new to training, start or re-start here. This program is like no other program. You get our entire foundation obedience program and the skills to have a well-mannered dog all in this 12 week program! Our Skills & Manners Program is conveniently split into two 6 week sets, Part 1 and Part 2, to allow you to break up the schedule and complete it at a pace that works for you. In each 6 week set we will meet once a week for 50 minutes.
In this program we teach the following 14 commands:
7 Obedience Commands - sit, down, stand, come, loose leash, heel, distance commands
7 Behaviour Commands - focus, leave it, out, place (bed/mat), settle, quiet, touch/target

Good Dogs in the City
Who should take this class?
If your dog listens great at home, but acts like you haven’t taught them anything when there are other people, dogs or distractions around, then this is the class for you! Join us for Good Dogs in the City - Training for real life!
This drop in style class is the next step for graduates of Skills & Manners - Part 1 or 2 or those who have equivalent handling skills and are ready to work with your dog in real life scenarios around all kinds of distractions. Classes will be held at different locations and use exercises and games to practice and advance your training each week. Drop in to all of them or just one or two. Classes will rotate through 4 different locations, so if you miss a location or topic, you can always jump in the next time it is offered.
Topics that we cover in this class:
Manners training around other people and dogs
Pay attention to you around distractions
Stay with distractions
Come command around distractions
Socialization to new sounds, objects and places
Continuing your skills to Intermediate - Advanced level obedience.
Pre-requisite: Skills & Manners - Part 2, private lesson or assessment. Register in advance, as space is limited. No reactive dogs please. If you are experiencing reactivity, contact us to tell us about your dog and we'll provide you with program options based on your goals.
